Designs like Dunelm’s Beatrice snuggle chair remind us why we love the brand so much. Dunelm’s affordable yet durable and on-trend homewares and furniture pieces make it our go-to whenever we’re looking to update our homes.

One of the best armchairs we’ve ever laid eyes on, the big and beautiful Beatrice snuggle chair went down a treat with customers and sold out in a matter of hours when launched last summer. And it’s now been brought back – with a bit of a twist.

While the original version was covered in quite the statement-making wide olive green and cream stripes, the new folkstone-stripe look is adorned with thinner ticking stripes available in either dark blue or red set against a cream cotton-blend material, which creates a more elegant style.

Dunelm’s striped Beatrice snuggle chair is back 

This is not the first time we’ve been drooling over an iconic Dunelm design, just take the Dunelm Keko wireless lamp also launched last year. Or the Mito sofa bed, especially in the striped version, which we rate as one of the best chair beds.

Dunelm’s Beatrice Folkstone Stripe Snuggle Chair is characteristic for its wide and square shape that can comfortably fit two people on its sizable seat. Pleated arm rests make for a lovely little detail, as do its dark wooden legs. 

The brand announced the chair’s return on Instagram a few days ago and the comments section is already full of requests for an extended colour range, as well as more size options.

One person wrote, ‘Gorgeous! Will this come in the two-seater version at all?’ Meanwhile another comment read, ‘I adore this but would love even more a green/olive or brown stripe.’

Well, one of the two is already on the cards, according to Dunelm’s editorial design manager, Lisa Jones. ‘The Beatrice chair has been incredibly popular with our customers, so we are extending the range to include a two-seater sofa (coming soon) and developed new ticking stripe colourways on the best-selling snuggle version. The various colourways of the stripe have wide style appeal and create a real focal point.’

The elegant armchair is on sale for £399 – which, while not a small sum, is a bit of steal compared to armchairs of similar sizes at other retailers. For example, the similar sized Morris Love seat at the Cotswold Company in cotton stripe is on sale for £1,150.

Measuring in at H 89cm x W 117cm x D 90cm, we can see why this snuggle chair has proven so popular – it definitely offers ample room, while the large fixed back and foam and fibre filled cushions guarantee a comfy seat.

Apart from the new and trendy striped version, the Beatrice chair is also available in a solid-coloured velvet finish with a quilted back rest for a more luxe aesthetic.

So if you missed out the first time, now is the time to snap the Beatrice up! And be quick, as there’s every chance it could sell out again.
